SSHRC Partnership Grants
Partnership Grants provide support for new and existing formal partnerships (over a period of four to seven years) to advance research, research training and/or knowledge mobilization in the social sciences and humanities through mutual co-operation and sharing of intellectual leadership as well as through resources as evidenced by cash and/or in-kind contributions. At least one partner must be from an organization or institution other than the University of Calgary. This program provides funding up to $500,000 per year for a maximum total of up to $2.5 million over seven years. Additional cash and/or in-kind support from partners totaling a minimum of 35% over and above the budget request from SSHRC.
The SSHRC Partnership Grants program consists of a two stage adjudication process involving a Letter of Intent (LOI) stage and a formal application stage (by invitation only). Important deadlines are identified below.
Faculty members interested in participating in a SSHRC Partnership Grants competition are encouraged to participate in a Test Your Concept opportunity to receive feedback on their ideas.

Projects being led elsewhere
If the University of Calgary is to be named as a partner organization, the co-applicant from the University of Calgary is encouraged to initiate discussions with their Faculty and contact Research Services (email@example.com) by January 20, 2016. Research Services will provide information on the invitation process and assist in fulfilling partner requirements.
* Faculty members interested in applying to the 2015 Partnership Grants program are asked to provide Research Services with a half-page overview of their proposed project by November 2, 2015 (a meeting to discuss next steps will then be scheduled).
The half-page overview should include a synopsis of the overall goals and objectives of the proposed partnership and corresponding research.
